We have a team of Keeping Safe Champions, adults who have a learning disability, who deliver a variety of workshops on subjects such as

  • Safer Surfing – Internet safety
  • Friend or Pretend Friends
  • Keeping Safe Out and About
  • Hate Crime
  • How to handle bogus callers

The Internet Safety workshop is a relatively new addition to our list and is the most requested workshop at the moment. We have found that working on a 1:1 basis works really well for some people and so offer these sessions as well as group workshops. We have a number of Easy Read leaflets available that are used in conjunction with the workshops or just for information.

The Keeping Safe Project also works with Derbyshire County Council to promote their Safe Places Scheme. This scheme is part of a national network and provides safe places for vulnerable people to go to if they feel scared, lost or need help when they are out and about in the community. Safe places can be found in public buildings such as libraries and shops.

The Keeping Safe Project has been a partnership project from the beginning and is overseen by a steering group made up of key stakeholders.
